Yeah, I’ve seen them.
Why would you do that to yourself?
Kill the idea that naivety is an unforgivable flaw but cynicism is just wisdom, murder it, chop it up and serve it for dinner, I don’t care, just end this bullshit idea that it’s better to hate than to love and better to rot in miserable bitter resignation than to hope for the best.
Misogynists HATE her! Local woman is woman
Lisa Simone Kelly opens up about her mom’s anger, their troubled relationship and what she thinks of Zoe Saldana playing her mom
he forthcoming biopic of the late singer’s life starring Zoe Saldana has been put on pause due to its own drama. Writer and director Cynthia Mort has been locked out by a legal dispute with the producers. This makes Lisa smile. She said:
"They did not ask me or the Nina Simone estate to participate in the film at all. It is based on a lie because it is based on the life of my mother’s assistant, Clifton Henderson. Clifton was gay so he could not have had an affair with my mother, which is what the film implies. And my mother was raised at a time when she was told her nose was too wide, her skin was too dark…She was rejected by the U.S. She loved classical music and wanted to become the first black classical pianist but her dreams turned to dust because of the colour of her skin. Zoe Saldana portraying her is a bad joke because there are more gifted actresses who are more in keeping with my mother’s appearance.
I know how my mother would feel about Zoe, so they are making a mockery of her experiences to construct their own truth. The goal seems to be to bleed me dry of everything my mother stood for, of everything she sacrificed. She had many experiences in her life that left her feeling sad and angry. They approached the estate for permission to use some of the songs but as administrator I refused. I had the biggest laugh when I heard that Cynthia Mort had been pushed out of the film. You could call it karma. There is most certainly a divine order at work.”
If Nina Simone’s own daughter has objects then you know the film is a piece of trashThis should get more notes
Restaurant Week: Vine American Kitchen
I would rate Vine about a 6.5/10. They have amazing crab cakes, A+ service, but everything else was kind of blah. My salad was just a salad, which is a wasted opportunity, and the wine was god awful. A decent restaurant, but not one I would visit again at full price.
I’m five spots too low.
pitbull was a great host during the AMAs
I don’t know why I always submit pieces on Friday nights and then have to wait all weekend to hear responses from periodicals.
